I’m a Stranger here to place called Earth

ImageI imagine no one will believe me when I say I met an alien from another planet sitting in Starbucks. It could have been a dream or was it?

A tennis goddess, asked to sit at my table and wanted to talk to me.  I looked around for a news crew or hidden camera.

Who me? (me)

Yes you, you have been chosen because of your superior intelligence and good looks to answer our questions. (goddess)

Cough, sputter, pffft. Please no jokes when I’m drinking coffee, I choked on my latte! I had to extend my line of credit for that! (me)

Yeah, right, Okay – it was a random draw and it seems like you just sit around drinking coffee all day anyway. Besides no one will believe you anyway if you say you met an alien that looks like Maria Sharapova. 

Hey! a little respect eh? Why do you look like a gorgeous tennis star and not some tentacled thing from Schwarzenegger jungle epic?

We clean up for field trips. Never mind anyway. We want to understand this Donald Trump presidential candidate, it confuses the cosmos. Is it some kind of homo sapiens humor?

No, well maybe.

Alright,  what are his qualifications? military service? Political experience? Corporate leadership? Pure motives?

Cough, sputter, pffft. Please no jokes when I’m drinking coffee, I asked you.  Donny boy has no experience in military like Theodore Roosevelt, or any political experience neither. He is a humble boy and is willing to start at the top, all humility that DT. No corporate whiz really, he came from his daddy’s riches and bought and sold real estate in New York City and made money like anyone and everyone did in real estate in New York City. He did try the casino business and became the only one ever to lose money at that and go bankrupt, letting the smaller businesses take his overspending fall. Motives?  Only The Shadow knows, but this is a big first job for The Apprentice.

But such a nation like the USA would only let the best and brightest lead and especially take the top post right?

Cough, sputter, pffft. I asked you before no jokes when I’m drinking coffee. I imagine Lincolns, and Roosevelts are in short supply now and now it takes billions of dollars to buy, I mean seek election.  No worries, Donald won’t be spending his own exaggerated assets, he would only take gifts of aircraft carrier sized rooms of cash from arms length persons who expect nothing in return. 

Cough, sputter, pffft – now who is joking! you did that on purpose! I passed dark roast up my nostrils!

Go back to your saucer ET, I have no answers for you. All I can say is that watching Donald Trump pretend to be a worthy candidate for the USA presidency is like the biggest daytime show of The Price is Right I’ve ever seen.  

My daytime daze ended and there I sat, cold latte and all – was it a dream?
